Comments Comments

US designer maker Craig Thibodeau is a modern day master of puzzle or mechanical furniture. A snapshot of his latest creation, its internal and external workings are demonstrated in the video shown below.

“Designed along a ‘Quest for the Holy Grail’ concept, the podium hides a golden chalice from the solver until a series of sequential puzzles have been solved. The chalice then rises from inside the podium automatically.”

The Podium was designed for magician and puzzle lover Chris Ramsay and made from makore and wenge. The puzzle designs are by Craig Thibodeau and Robert Yarger. Learn more about Craig Thibodeau's work at
